some positivity for you, Paris

Why is the world crying and praying for Paris? Because it’s familiar. Many have already travelled there, many have dreamt of going there, and only very few had a completely neutral feeling towards the city. Continue reading some positivity for you, Paris

travel: hotel vs. airbnb

During our 17-day trip to Europe, we had the opportunity to stay in both hotels and also in an airbnb listing. If you are not familiar with airbnb, it’s a website designed to help you find apartments to rent out wherever you go, in a safe, certified way. You get options of renting out a room, or a full place to yourself. Although I probably don’t have nearly enough airbnb experience to judge it so quickly, I have enough travel and life experience to make some conclusions. Continue reading travel: hotel vs. airbnb

Paris: the cheapest date night possible

Being in Paris with the love of my life is a dream come true. I couldn’t have asked for a better week, and probably from our last couple weeks of travel, Paris is the most romantic spot (yes, even more than Venice or Rome). Every sight, every sound, every corner we turn, makes us fall even more in love with each other and this city. Continue reading Paris: the cheapest date night possible
